Divinely Blue Deodar Cedar
Cedrus deodara' Divinely Blue
Cedrus deodara ‘Divinely Blue’ is a fine selection of Deodar cedar that grows as a wide-spreading, flat-topped shrub when young. As the plant matures it will develop apical dominance eventually becoming broadly conical. Branching is typical of the species, radiating outward with nodding branch tips. Foliage is quite attractive and unique, blue-green to powder blue in color and somewhat longer than those of the type.
After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 4 feet (1.2 m) tall and 3 feet (1 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 4 to 5 inches (10 – 12.5 cm).
This cultivar originated as a seedling selected by Angelica Nurseries, Kennedyville, Maryland, USA. They named it in honor of Bill Devine, a retired propagator there.
